The How Not to Die Cookbook: 100+ Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease Reviews

  • Nichelle Crocker

    Great whole food, plant-based recipes. Overall the preparation is straightforward and there are many recipes that don't require a huge list of ingredients. I'm not a foodie and don't enjoy cooking much and this cookbook fits my style well.

    Dr. Greger's humor and good-natured personality come through here as they do in everything else he touches. It's a fun read as well as a good resource.

    UPDATE: half a year later and I still use this cookbook at least once a week. I

    Great whole food, plant-based recipes. Overall the preparation is straightforward and there are many recipes that don't require a huge list of ingredients. I'm not a foodie and don't enjoy cooking much and this cookbook fits my style well.

    UPDATE: half a year later and I still use this cookbook at least once a week. I love it.

    There is a set of “simple preparations” in the beginning. If you make them ahead and have them on hand it simplifies cooking from this book significantly. The savory spice blend is my favorite. I make it in quadruple batches and put it on almost everything.

    Borrowed from library & need to purchase. Such convincing info to make necessary dietary changes.

    My husband and I were huge fans of Dr. Greger's book so I had to pre-order his accompanying cookbook. We have made about 10 recipes from it and they have all been AWESOME! I think my favorite recipe so far has been the Curried Chickpea Wraps. We also enjoyed the Black Bean Burgers, Lentil Shephard's Pie, Sweet Potato Hash, and Moroccan Lentil Soup.

    The recipes are simple and delicious and each one features a full-page photo so you know how the dish should look when you're done. I also

    The recipes are simple and delicious and each one features a full-page photo so you know how the dish should look when you're done. I also like that Dr. Greger included recipes for kitchen staples like date paste, savory spice blend, etc. and his tip for lemon and lime juice has been a game changer! This was one of our top used cookbooks of 2017.

    Great follow-up to “How Not To Die”. It begins with a brief but thorough summary of everything in Greger’s initial book, then several recipes that I use as starting off points for my own concoctions. He teamed up with culinary expert Gene Stone and has lots of beautiful pictures (a necessity for me with cookbooks). It’s important to read his book with this and to download his FREE app Greger’s Daily Dozen. This will help you change your life to a plant-based, disease-free, energy-charged place y

It’s important to read his book with this and to download his FREE app Greger’s Daily Dozen. This will help you change your life to a plant-based, disease-free, energy-charged place you didn’t know it could go. Thank you Dr. Greger for being a real doctor interested in disease prevention and root causes rather than immediate gratification, pharmaceutical masks and pain pills.

    I think I will need to buy this book - a companion cookbook to the How Not to Die non-fiction tome. I read several chapters, gleaning information on proper foods to eat to maintain good health.

    I haven't tried making any dessert or drinks, but from the savoury recipes, this book is a winner. One piece of advice - the whole jig on onion (red and spring) is a little bit too crazy for me. I'd put in half as much, or even less. Otherwise, great cookbook - always my go to when I feel like having a blast in the kitchen.

    Firstly. I NEED to read the actual

    book because the parts I really enjoyed were at the beginning which were very informative nutritional facts and I know more of that would be in the original.

    While the recipes gave me an insight into different ways I could incorporate a plant based diet into my cooking there was a lot of ingredients included which are hard to get or really expensive where Im from or on Amazon which takes it a star down for me. Another half a star

    While the recipes gave me an insight into different ways I could incorporate a plant based diet into my cooking there was a lot of ingredients included which are hard to get or really expensive where Im from or on Amazon which takes it a star down for me. Another half a star down is because the word "easy" in the difficulty level is bloody relative thankyou. When you say that a simple dish which takes up to 2 hours or more to make is EASY. No thanks. And because of lack of access to some things just means it doesn't have that desired taste. Well. Just great.

    I would have appreciated a cookbook which was more aware of financial considerations and time constraints as well as giving alternative substitutes.

    Despite this I really did enjoy the recipes I tried and making them and I recommend mainly for the intro and the simpler recipes and just a better insight on how a plant based diet can help out gut and overall health. There are however many better cheaper and simpler plant based recipes online. The reason I read this is because it was available in the library but the first one wasnt. Im more determined to get hold of the other one in book form.

    2.5. Plant based vegan recipes. Nice layout and photos but to be honest some of these recipes I'd rather die than eat. Unless someone can make them for me....

    The cookbook companion to How Not to Die is less useful than the book itself; there are many better recipes out there that adhere well enough to a plant-based whole-foods oil-free diet to be very healthful. Forks Over Knives and Dr. John McDougall provide many excellent recipes for free on their website.

    Greger limits himself to only his Green Light foods, which is an admirable goal but doesn't jive with the point he makes in How Not to Die about making Green Light foods more palatabl

    The cookbook companion to How Not to Die is less useful than the book itself; there are many better recipes out there that adhere well enough to a plant-based whole-foods oil-free diet to be very healthful. Forks Over Knives and Dr. John McDougall provide many excellent recipes for free on their website.

    Greger limits himself to only his Green Light foods, which is an admirable goal but doesn't jive with the point he makes in How Not to Die about making Green Light foods more palatable with Yellow Light ones. Bluntly put, a lot of these recipes don't look palatable even to me, and my palate is already adjusted to whole grains and bitter vegetables. I can't imagine springing them on the person with whom I share my life. Many use essentially the same spice blend (it's intended to replace salt). Others, like the Quinoa Tabouli and Lemony Hummus, barely deviate from traditional recipes available everywhere.

    On top of that, many recipes require a high-speed blender or a heavy-duty food processor. I love the idea of making the date truffle recipe in this book (or one of the myriad others like it floating around the internet) but I'm not buying a food processor or burning out my dependable Oster blender.

    That said, there are some really good-looking recipes in here: I'll try his Ranch Dressing; Three-Seed Crackers; the Spinach Dip; the Pumpkin Seed Dip; the Curried Cauliflower Soup; the Kale Salad with Avocado Goddess Dressing; the Super Caesar Salad; the Black Bean Burgers; the Cauliflower Steaks with Chermouli Sauce (or at least the sauce); the Louisiana-Style Soy Curls; and some of the smoothies. But I'm already certain I'll modify these recipes to include salt; Greger is adamant in How Not to Die that an ideal diet doesn't include added salt, but my (genetically low) blood pressure on a vegan diet is already at the level he suggests are seen in salt-free populations. Interestingly, this speaks to one of the questions I have about Greger's books: do his rigid rules run the risk of railroading concerns about the specific nutritional needs of individuals?

    I was fascinated by "How Not To Die", but I found this companion cookbook a little disappointing. Many of the recipes looked kind of dull, and there were a fair number of recipes that I think of as "faking food" - foods that are pretending to be something else that has meat in it. (e.g. vegan Sloppy Joes, vegan burgers, vegan bolognese, etc.) I tend to prefer vegan recipes that don't try to be something that they're not, but instead embrace the possibilities of the actual food that's being cooke

I guess I'll keep looking for that cookbook.
